The question I’ve been asked most over the years at The Do South Shop is “How do I know which sofa will be right for me?”
Like anyone, sometimes we get carried away with the things we’ve seen or heard about but there’s nothing like making a space your own with a sofa designed around you. We handpick each sofa in our range to bring to your attention designs that are in style today and will still be something to shout about years from now.
Our advice? When choosing your sofa make sure that it ticks these 3 boxes:
The Style of your sofa can change the feel of the whole space. Large or small, it’s important to get the Style right as such a large piece of furniture can make or break your room. Always consider the risk of overcrowding a room with a massive sofa – in some cases less really is more!
Comfort is King – or Queen! What’s your lifestyle? Do you need a bit of extra support? Something firm and sharp like the Ray could be right up your street. Or are you a lazy Sunday person who wants a sofa to snuggle into like a George? Lots of factors can make a difference to comfort, so be sure to consider the fabric texture and cushion filling when you’re looking for a new sofa.
These days, big furniture brands are selling cheaper and cheaper sofas, particularly over the internet. Don’t be fooled! If the price sounds too good to be true, it very likely is. All our in-house sofas come with a 10 Year Frame Guarantee and our fabrics have all passed the current British fire retardant test. Starting from as little as £945 you can try and buy our display sofas at the Crystal Palace showroom. One of my personal favourites is the Rollo sofa bed by Innovation – super style, fantastic comfort and excellent value that ticks all the boxes!
